The Truth Telling Project
The Truth Telling Project implements and sustains grassroot, community-centered truth-telling processes to amplify our voices about structural violence. We share stories, facilitate healing, support activist on the ground, educate, and seek justice.
Structural Violence refers to systematic ways in which social structures harm or otherwise disadvantage individuals -
it is subtle, often invisible, and often has no one specific person who can or will be held responsible.
We are a not-for-profit organization under the sponsorship of the NEIU Foundation.
As part of our mission to support grassroots activist, each month The Truth Telling Project highlights grassroots activist and truth-tellers who are making a difference in their community.
This month we're uplifting Mama Cat.
Check out this video to learn more about her:
Cathy "Mama Cat" Daniels is an honor graduate of Culinary Institute of St. Louis at Hickey College, disaster service volunteer with the American Red Cross for 2 years deployed to natural disasters across the country, "Women In Leadership" Urban League Award recipient, St. Louis Blues Community Play Makers Award recipient, and a member of the Injustice Anywhere National Benevolent Association.
Year round, Mama Cat leads an army of volunteers "Pot Bangerz" in feeding hundreds of Missouri’s homeless. Every day, Mama Cat can be found at a handful of food pantries collecting ingredients for her special home cooked meals.
All funds raised will go directly to Mama Cat to be used in whatever way she needs to support her as she does this great work.
Thank you for the support!
